Gathering Tips

These are based on opinions and may not be true. These should be viewed as advice unless proven undoubtedly true. Check comments for confirmation. Results may vary.

  • Killing Phorid on Assassination Invasion missions on a planet where Orokin Cells drop is a very quick way to get many Orokin Cells, with one Cell dropping per run most of the time. With good gear and/or good teammates, a fast moving cell can do a single run within 2 minutes.
  • On Telesto, Saturn, one can get Orokin Cells from Cell Arrays: There are usually one to two arrays found at this map, which can drop 1-3 Cells.
  • On Gabii, Ceres, you can get 4-7 Orokin Cells from opening containers or breaking Cell Arrays.


  • Sometimes referred to as a "Raw Potato" or "Potato Seed" by the community, referencing how Orokin Catalysts or Orokin Reactors are called 'Potatoes'.
  • Barring the Twin Gremlins and the Akzani, Orokin Cells are required to craft all dual secondaries (either as it is or as a Forma). This does not include dual secondaries given away during events.
  • Orokin Cells are used in constructing most Warframes and most Prime weapons.
